A few months ago, DJ Fresh found himself embroiled in a scandal. It all started when the popular radio personality was accused of sexually assaulting a young woman – something he denies to this day. While it’s no longer a hot topic in Mzansi, Fresh recently got dragged after the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) shared a clip on Twitter of him wishing them a Happy Birthday.

South African radio personality and hitmaker DJ Fresh, as well as the EFF recently got dragged by a number of South Africans after the party headed to Twitter to share a video clip of the DJ wishing them on their eighth birthday.

In the clip, Fresh can be seen with a big smile on his face as he shares his well wishes while speaking in Setswana.


South Africans were not impressed with the political party for giving a rape accused a platform. A lot of them felt as if the EFF was sympathising with an accused rapist and in doing so, disregarding the struggle of women who were raped and then silenced. As a result, a number of tweets dedicated to bashing the party were born.

“Delete this nonsense. @Julius_S_Malema how can you allow this nonsense mara wena. A whole rape accused. Aowa.”
